Ingredients

1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed, cut approximately 8-10cm wide

2 tsp Plant-based Nuttelex

400 g halloumi cheese, pre sliced if available

1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes

fresh mint leaves

4 lemon wedges

Directions

1Blanch asparagus until bright green and just tender for about 2 minutes, refresh in a bowl of ice water, then pat dry on absorbent paper

2Cut halloumi lengthways to create slices about the same width as the asparagus

3Heat a large griddle pan over a medium-high heat add Nuttelex and when melted, sear halloumi slices so you have grill marks and the slices are lightly browned, about 8 minutes in total

4Allow them to cool enough so you can handle, then thread blanched asparagus and seared halloumi alternately onto bamboo skewers

5Sprinkle the lemon wedges with chilli flakes, scatter fresh mint leaves and serve.
